One of my favourite times of the school year is April. Not just because exams and final assignments are finishing up. And not because classes are done. I actually got super sad this year as I saw my friends starting to think about their courses for next year, and I realized that I’m done taking courses for my undergrad.
The reason it’s one of my favourite times of the year is because this is the time that different student clubs and organizations start hiring their new executive team members and setting plans for the coming year. (more…)
On March 28, 2015, I did the coolest thing ever.
I’ve referenced it a couple times in my blog. It’s been my fun fact for every ice breaker since then. And I’ve probably told you about it or mentioned if you’ve talked to me since then.
I gave a talk at TEDxYorkU.
But I never actually wrote a full reflection about it. So here we go. It’s only a year late… (more…)
Back in September, I created a Glendon bucket-list for plans and goals for myself for fourth year. It was a way for me to ensure that I make sure that I had a direction, some focus and that I had things I could work toawrds. So now that all my grades are in, and that the academic year has been done for almost a month (oops.) here is my review of my goals. Did I complete them? Read on to figure out! (more…)
Every year, I make sure to write a blogpost for Thanksgiving in honour of me writing my very first blogpost for #TeamAwesome (AKA, the wonderful crew of Glendon bloggers that show how beautiful… and talented and smart that we Glendonites are!). Since this is my fourth Thanksgiving blogpost I’m writing, here are 4 things I’m thankful for. (more…)
University is a time to broaden your intellectual horizons. It’s a time to learn about the world and what keeps it moving. It’s a time to meet new people, experience new cultures and become a well educated member of society.
Glendon has given me incredible opportunities that have led me to learn about myself and the world. Just in this month I have three very new experiences that have only been afforded to be as I am lucky to be part of the Glendon community, be in Toronto and have met some amazing people here. (more…)
Another year has started at Glendon. Frosh week has come and gone, people’s schedules are (mostly) set for the year and the campus seems to have entered into a routine that is comfortable to everyone. This is my 4th beginning of a new year of university but not my last. I will definitely be doing a fifth year but this year I’m definitely starting to feel my age and experience. Not that it’s panicing or whatever.
Everybody knows university is the optimal space to gain new experiences, obtain ground-breaking knowledge and start to learn about yourself, what you want out of life and for your future. These three facets of university – experience, knowledge and self-discovery – are what I believe make university so great.
The fact that there is an institution in society that simultaneously teaches people what they’re passionate about, educates them about their passions and also provides them with so many opportunities to explore and develop themselves is incredible. And I love being part of it. (more…)
